Canterbury Folk Festival

A Family Festival of Music

The Silver Beaver Lodge


Saturday 31st March at 6pm


The Dunedin Musicians come up from the deep south, set up camp (AKA the ‘Silver Beaver Lodge’) and organise an annual ‘themed come all, get together’. 

The idea is for newcomers and old friends alike to meet, share and enjoy a fun evening, catch up on ol’ goss and meet new people.. 

This event  happens on the Saturday late afternoon, prior to the evening concert.

Dress in your themed attire and come along with a plate of nibbles to share and you own drinks.

∞✥∞ The invitation has been copper-plated, it is now time to get your thinking robes on, a ‘World Leaders’ theme has been declared and The Silver Beaver Lodge request the honour of your presence at the ‘World Leaders’ dress-up, drinks and nibbles at the Silver Beaver Lodge Summit
Saturday 31st March at 6pm Ȫ✥Ȫ
With the present bunch, Kim, Trump, Merkel, May, Trudeau, Ardern, etc. Not to mention those past, and passed, there should be plenty of options for everyone. Frivolity, creativity and good humour assured again this year!!!
Such fun was had last year with ‘The Royals’ theme which included an A-line guest list including Fergie, Queen of Hearts, Queen Victoria and representatives from many dynasty’s from international realms.
Be part of another headline cast, you never know who you will rub shoulders with!
Please BYO and nibbles to share.
